  1. Just a friendly correction. Kendra did attend a Tribal Council. I think you meant to write Jake.

    Thanks for these. The stat kid in me is always very happy.

  2. “It’s also the first null vote in a season with new players.
    All three null votes have happened in a season with at least one returning player.”

    This season have a returning player in Bruce.

    • This is the first season where there was a null vote with new players, as all the previous null votes ONLY happened in seasons with returning players (Cambodia, Game Changers, WaW)
      The second line is saying that all null votes have happened in a season with at least 1 returning player as Bruce is a returning player this season
